Arsenal fans react to the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace
Arsenal registered their second win a row in the Premier League with a dominant performance against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Despite beating West Bromwich Albion 1-0 on Monday, the Gunners knew the year 2016 did not end on the most positive note after falling behind in the title race courtesy of defeats to Everton and Manchester City.
However, Arsene Wenger’s men showed signs that they are ready to put up a fight in the new year as goals from Olivier Giroud and Alex Iwobi secured the three points against Sam Allardyce’s side.
It was a match which will forever be remembered for featuring a magnificent effort from Giroud whose back-heeled volley found the net in the first half.
With Arsenal beginning 2017 on the right track, here was how fans on social media reacted to their display on Sunday….

No idea why Wenger is subbing off fringe players who won't start against Bournemouth
